The Proposal (2009)

A somewhat stale bottle of 2000s wine, LOVABLE still for its cast, sarcasm, and subtle sweetness.

Regan Humphrey

Stone cold businesswoman Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) is in a predicament. An expired visa will result not only in her deportation back to Canada, but her termination as editor-in-chief of Colden Books, a New York publishing giant. To avoid this fate, she conspires to enter a fraudulent marriage with Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds), her her plucky, overworked executive assistant, by blackmailing him.
